SPIRITUAL JOURNEYS OF CHILDREN AND YOUTH AT INSPIRE
Growing spiritually together as a family is one of INSPIRE’s highest values and priorities. Below are listed the important milestones your children will experience as they grow up at INSPIRE.
Baptism is a really big deal at INSPIRE. It was a big deal to Jesus (He commanded it) – it’s a big deal to us! We recognize the practice of baptism as a wonderful, mysterious, inclusive event in a person’s life. Thus, we gladly celebrate and practice baptism for ALL ages, and embrace both sprinkling and full water immersion (depending upon age, circumstances, and preference).
Though we are happy to accommodate private ceremonies where circumstances dictate, it is our desire to celebrate baptism within the context of worship amidst the family of INSPIRE.
FIFTH GRADE COMMUNION
During a student’s fifth-grade year special instruction will be given for their First Communion. This special instruction may involve a fun overnight event when possible.
It is very important at INSPIRE that students understand and revere the significance of communion prior to receiving it. It is a very special moment involving the whole family and will occur during the Holy Week services leading up to Easter Sunday.
Following Confirmation, students are welcome to continue leading and participating in the Wednesday IGNITE worship services as well as the Sr. High Group led by Pastor Randy.
